Every man fears death. The word itself brings goose pimples. But the one who has understood restraint, who has learnt to embrace equanimity, he will be able to save himself from the fear of death. Those who make preparations for a peaceful departure, invite death and do not fear it. They go close to death without fear. This is possible only when they transcend the boundaries of life and death and enter a third arena.

It is natural that even a dying man wishes to be alive. He has an intense desire to live. He is scared of death. But there are some people who invite death, praise it and gladly accept it.

The question that arises is how to bring about a change in the conscious? Where the limits of life and death finish, there begins the region of equanimity and restraint. In that stage, the conscious changes, the psyche is transformed.
